Washington left winger Jason Chimera scored a goal and added an assist to help the Capitals defeat the visiting Anaheim Ducks in a shootout Friday night.

Chimera's goal was his fifth of the season. He scored it on a wrist shot in the second period. In the third period, he was credited with his seventh assist of the season on a goal by John Carlson. Carlson now has six goals in 2014-15. Washington played without defenseman Mike Green, who scratched with a lower-body injury.

Jason Chimera and Michael Latta will be healthy scratches against the LA Kings on Tuesday night.

Chimera's production level has fallen off as he's put together just 10 points, 24 PIMs, and 79 hits through 48 games this season. Latta at least has 44 PIMs and 57 hits through his 33 games, striking much better value if your league rewards tough guys.

Jason Chimera will skate on Washington's fourth line on Tuesday night against the Panthers.

After being a healthy scratch for Saturday's game, Chimera will skate to the left of Michael Latta and Jay Beagle on the Caps' fourth line. It's tough to recommend any of them as viable fantasy options, however.

Jason Chimera has drawn the ire of Coach Trotz and will be a healthy scratch on Saturday night.

Andre Burakovsky will suit up in his place. "You’ve got to learn from it," Chimera said of his benching. "I think it’s embarrassing as a player when you get sat out. A player that’s played a long time, I think it’s embarrassing but you’ve got to move [on] from it. You can’t really let it get to you too much." Chimera took an interference penalty that lead to Nick Foligno's overtime winner over Washington on Thursday. He has six points in 28 games this season.

Jason Chimera tickled the twine for the Capitals in their 2-1 shootout win against the Panthers on Saturday night.

Chimera’s goal was his first point of the season. Though he had a solid night with five shots on goal and two penalty minutes, he’s nothing but a depth forward for Washington. Eric Fehr and Joel Ward picked up the helpers.

Jason Chimera had a goal and two assists Sunday.

The three point night gives Chimera 12 goals and 29 points in 56 games this season. He really does not have overall value in fantasy pools as there are too many similar type players and Chimera does not distinguish himself in any one category in traditional pools.
